ABB adds Bluetooth wireless to EMAX circuit breakers
Two new Bluetooth enabled communication units are now available from ABB to allow Bluetooth enabled personal digital assistant (PDA) or Bluetooth enabled personal computer to communicate directly with the trip unit wirelessly. Download free SD-Pocket freeware on-line for a PDA or computer at the ABB website to allow the PDA to interrogate trip units from up to fifteen feet from the operating switchgear. If you purchase the external Bluetooth Module (BT030), the software is provided on a memory stick.
With the new Bluetooth enabled device you can perform the following functions:
Trip units on ABBs line of Emax low voltage power circuit breakers offer expansion slots which allow the installation of the specialized communication modules. These modules are an available option for Emax circuit breakers or may be added to the trip unit later by the end user. ABB also offers a selfpowered Bluetooth communication unit for the companys line of Tmax molded case circuit breaker electronic trip systems. The unit can be pre-installed directly to the test connector on the faceplate of those circuit breakers.
Now, from ABB, power system communication is easier than ever, adding localized wireless communication to the available Modbus communication for remote monitoring. With ABB you are in complete control. For more information please contact:
